Obama and Phone

Today’s good news

Textbook

And millennials have found an occasional use for books.

Not gone but forgotten

Veterans Affairs

News Headline: “Six months since VA scandal broke, and ‘nothing has changed.’ ”
The Department of Veterans Affairs should be commended for its efficiency.
It often takes years for the federal government to accomplish nothing.

Economics 101

Elizabeth Warren
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) expressing disappointment at President Obama’s latest appointment to the Treasury Department:
“. . . Enough is enough. . . . Wall Street executives dominating the Obama administration. . . . repeatedly turned to nominees with close Wall Street ties . . .  time for the Obama administration to loosen the hold that Wall Street banks have over economic policy. . . .”
Warren is new to politics and fails to grasp the order of things.
To review:
The Republicans are in bed with Wall Street.
The Democrats curl up at the foot of the bed.

Next they’ll be telling us it’s a bad idea to poke a hornet’s nest with a stick.
Bunch of elitist know-it-alls.

QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

Constantinople Conference
D.K., a Lafayette, Colo., reader, regarding QT’s mention that the Third Council of Constantinople met 1,404 years ago to reject miaphysitism, writes:
“Evidently when the council rejected miaphysitism, it also banned it from dictionaries, including my wife’s Shorter Oxford English Dictionary (5th Edition).”
Apologies.
QT wasn’t exactly making itself plain.
Probably should have pointed out that miaphysitism is also known as henophysitism.
Then again, if QT had a nickel for every time it confused henophysitism with dyophysitism. . . .
